Céad Míle Fáilte ~ A Hundred Thousand Welcomes!

Here we seek a rest in the shade, some cool water and a little kindness. This blog is dedicated to peace, truth, justice and a post- industrial, post-petroleum illumined world in spite of all odds against it. I very much like the line about the ancient knight (see poem below) "His helmet now shall make a hive for bees" It is reminiscent of "beating swords into ploughshares" a sentiment I heartily approve of. Thank you for visiting ~ I hope you return!

Kucinich Files Articles Of Impeachment

Here are the 35 articles of impeachment presented by Rep. Dennis Kucinich to the House of Representatives yesterday. The complete bill is found here.

Whatever one thinks of Mr. Kucinich for caving on abortion a few years ago (he is a Catholic: pray for his soul) his leadership in other crucial areas is faultless. He is an honorable man and I for one honor his brave move.
